LinkedInformed Podcast. The LinkedIn Show

Welcome to this weeks episode where we continue the discussion with Rosie O'Hara we started in in episode 110 regarding 'Words that change minds'.

In this show we talk about;

  • How to reply to accepted invitations
  • What sort of message to send to someone who has viewed your profile
  • The dangers of commenting without taking time out to calm down!
  • The recent 'Gracegate' issue where a senior banking executive causes a storm by posting a screenshot of a comment made that she found offensive.

How would you feel if when you joined a company they asked you to changed the name of your LinkedIn profile from your name to the company name and when you left that company, you are then required to close that account down?
